The Alabama High School Athletic Association Central Board has approved spring sports’ alignments for the upcoming 2020-21 and 2021-21 classification period. The action was taken Thursday during a special called teleconference meeting.
Sports alignments for the next classification period for the sports of baseball, softball, boys’ and girls’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ outdoor track, boys’ and girls’ tennis, boys’ golf and girls’ golf were discussed and approved. There will be no change in the number of divisions for each spring sport. For baseball, softball and outdoor track, the schools will be divided into seven classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A). For soccer, tennis and girls’ golf, the schools will be divided into four divisions (1A/3A, 4A/5A, 6A, 7A). In boys’ golf, the schools will compete in six divisions (1A/2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A).
“We thank the Central Board for its commitment to fair play, and we also thank the AHSAA executive staff for their many hours of hard work and research,” said AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese. Central Board president Keith Bender also thanked Mr. Savarese and the AHSAA staff for their efforts.
AHSAA school reclassification for the upcoming 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years was announced last November. Fall sports alignments were released at the conclusion of the fall sports’ season last December, and winter sports alignments were released last March after the conclusion of the winter sports season.
